  1. That's quite a statement. One that suggests loss of all sense of context, or not having read it.
  2. LSL Acadata: +0.8% yoy London in Oct (from revised +0.8% in Sep) +0.9% yoy England and Wales in Nov http://www.acadata.co.uk/services/house-price-index/ http://www.acadata.co.uk/assets/uploads/2018/12/LSL-Acadata-EW-HPI-News-Release-November-18.pdf
  3. A re-vote to remain would be implemented immediately. Will of the (right) people.
  4. Think I wrote at the start of this that the outcome would be a compromise or just never permitted, as you say. Winners don't tend to care at all about the loser historical narrative, particularly when they get to write it.
  5. I think it's stupid to believe an abstention would be considered that way by the system, or by anyone else not abstaining.
  6. Vote. What's the rationale for abstaining?
  7. Fingers crossed, but from my (anecdotal) experience there doesn't seem much connecting the dots between referendum/brexit and voting Conservative.
  8. Yes interesting thread - many points brought up that could have been lifted from here.

    Budget 2018 announced

    Tax rules for second-homes to be reviewed by ministers https://www.gov.uk/government/news/tax-rules-for-second-homes-to-be-reviewed-by-ministers "A business rates ‘loophole’ which could be costing English councils millions in lost Council Tax is to be reviewed by ministers with a consultation launched today (7 November 2018). Currently, second-home owners pay Council Tax on their properties including when the property is available to rent infrequently during the year. Properties are valued for business rates when owners declare their property is available to let as ‘holiday accommodation’ for 140 days or more in a year. Any property registered for business rates, rather than Council Tax, is likely to qualify for small business rate relief. This provides 100% relief from business rates, so no tax is due on properties with a rateable value of £12,000 or less. Around 47,000 holiday lets in England are liable for business rates, of which circa 96% have rateable values of £12,000 or less. Currently there is no requirement for evidence to be produced that a property has actually been commercially let. Genuine businesses can claim the relief to which they are entitled. However, the government is aware of concerns that owners of second homes which do not fall into this category, could exploit the system by not paying Council Tax, whilst still using local services."

    Budget 2018 announced

    Not forgetting his land option agreement: http://www.channel4.com/info/press/news/secrets-of-britain-s-new-homes-channel-4-dispatches The adjacent development by Martin Grant Homes looks to be ongoing/complete now: https://www.martingranthomes.co.uk/location/woodhill/ Oudated aeriel photos but that's the area of development, and house to NE with pool is his according to public Companies House info. So assume the optioned land is to the east or south of the main property. Map Matter of time.
  13. Yes good spot. '...Budget announces that from April 2021, a new Help to Buy Equity Loan scheme will run for 2 years before closing in March 2023. The new scheme will be available for first-time buyers only, and for houses with a market value up to new regional property price caps, as set out in Table 4.2. These caps are set at 1.5 times the current forecast regional average first-time buyer price, up to a maximum of £600,000 in London. The government does not intend to introduce a further Help to Buy Equity Loan scheme after March 2023.' https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/budget-2018-documents/budget-2018

    It's the equity loan scheme (HTB1), which is just for new builds. The mortgage guarantee scheme (HTB2) now closed was for existing properties. Still corrupt as fck, but not quite as much.
